Cookstr search makes finding recipes easy. Here’s how it works:

You can start out with a basic search – such as recipe, ingredient or chef – or try an advanced search by taste, texture, occasion, course, budget, skill level, and many more! Just click the ‘advanced search’ button on the orange search side-menu to expand the full list of search options.

At any time in your search, you can further refine results by checking off additional advanced search categories, and change the order in which results are sorted, by clicking the ‘relevance’, ‘newest’ or ‘chef/author’ buttons directly above your search results.

You can also type a keyword directly into the search bar that fits into any of these categories, and beyond!

Use your imagination - you might be surprised at what you find.
